The Washington State Attorney General’s Office and DSHS Division of Alcohol and Substance Abuse have partnered to bring you the Washington Prevention Youth Spring Forum. The Spring Forum is planned to follow up from our Prevention Summit held last fall in Yakima and recognize youth who took the information they learned at the Summit and put it into action.


2009 Washington Prevention Youth Spring Forum Program

The Washington Attorney General’s Office, in an effort to support the continued prevention of alcohol, tobacco and drug use and place an emphasis on the importance of methamphetamine, prescription, and synthetic substance use prevention is providing financial assistance for the 2009 Spring Prevention Youth Recognition Forum.

These funds are generated from court settlements with drug companies that impact citizens of Washington State. Funds are available to help offset costs for youth prevention teams and their adult advisor/chaperones to attend the 2009 Washington Prevention Youth Spring Forum.
